APS11700 and APS11760 provide reliable, solid-state upgrades for reed and microswitches, even in the most power-sensitive applications

Manchester, NH, USA – Allegro MicroSystems, a global leader in power and sensing semiconductor technology, has been recognized as a recipient of China Electronic Market (CEM) Magazine’s 2018 Editor's Choice Awards. The award recognizes Allegro's APS11700 and APS11760 planar/vertical micropower Hall-effect switches as "the most competitive sensor in China," and it confirms Allegro as a leading player in China's fast-growing sensor market—especially for the automotive and industrial sectors.

"We are honored to have won this prestigious award from CEM," said Scott Milne, Allegro’s Business Unit Director for Position and Angle Sensors. "We know that a reputable panel of industry experts deliberated carefully on the submissions. Our win affirms Allegro's absolute commitment to collaborating with our customers in China to offer the most innovative solutions within the marketplace.”

The APS11700 and APS11760 hall-effect switch ICs add power management to Allegro’s portfolio of Hall-effect switches, enabling an average supply current as low as 6µA. They feature a unique combination of ruggedness and ultra-low power, designed for reliable operation from batteries or unregulated supplies in harsh environments. They can be used as a reliable, solid-state upgrade for reed and microswitches, making them ideal for power-sensitive applications in the automotive and industrial markets.
